Hi loves, I’ve been working on a Huda Beauty Brown Edition Liquid Matte Minis swatches video, and I finally have it up to share. I thought it is only right that I write an accompanying review as you don’t really get that from a swatch video. I’ll keep it short and sweet and cover what you can expect from the Huda Brown Edition. I’ve never really tried Huda Beauty liquid lipsticks out before, so when I saw these mini kits I knew I had to pick one up so that I could form an opinion on them.
There are 4 kits available, but the Brown Edition definitely looked the best in my opinion. It seemed to contain the most wearable colours, warm tones which really flatter tanned skin tones. Having never used Huda Beauty liquid lipsticks before I was really interested in finding out what the formula was like and whether they were comfortable to wear. I found that the colours were very rich, one swipe was enough to fully coat my lip and they were really easy to work with. They dried slightly slower on me than other liquid lipsticks (Beauty Bakerie, Lime Crime) but nothing significant enough to put me off wearing them. They felt really comfortable on the lips, not drying at all, I would say actually probably one of most comfortable liquid lipstick formulas I’ve used. Unfortunately there is a slight complaint, they don’t last as well as other liquid lipsticks. If you are just out and about and not snacking/eating, you have no issues what so ever but after a meal you will definitely have to re-apply. For me this is fine, I would probably touch up on long lasting liquid lipstick after eating anyways, so a re-application isn’t too much of a bug bear. I find that the drier your lips feel, the longer MOST products last. So it makes sense that the most comfortable liquid lipstick doesn’t last as long.
Let’s talk colours. Each kit contains 4 shades, and the Huda Beauty Brown Liquid Matte Minis set is no different. The kit contains Flirt, Trendsetter, Spice Girl and Vixen. I genuinely actually like every single shade in this kit which in itself is really surprising for me. Usually when I buy sets, such as the Kylie mini kits, there are shades that don’t suit me or are too light but Huda really has catered well for the tanned skin tones. I’ll quickly talk through each shade for you.
Huda Beauty Flirt Liquid Lipstick
Huda Beauty Flirt liquid lipstick feels like a perfect nude to me. It’s a cool toned nude on my skintone, and has definite brown tones running through it. I think it will suit quite a lot of skin tones and it is so easy to wear. One swipe is enough for full coverage and it doesn’t go patchy. Initially after applying, it is a little tacky so you have to wait a bit for it to dry but once it has dried, you are good to go. Full size is £18.00 and you can pick it up [here].
Huda Beauty Trendsetter Liquid Lipstick
Huda Beauty Trendsetter Liquid Lipstick might be my favourite, I’m still making my mind up between this and Spice Girl. This, screams my name. It reminds me very much of my all time favourite matte nude(ish) lipstick – Taupe [I’ve spoken about that here]. It has strong peach undertones and I feel like it really flatters me. I’m wearing this as I type, and I’ve had a couple of compliments on it at work today. The formula glides on, doesn’t take too long to dry, and is properly pigmented. I can see myself picking up this up in full size once my mini runs out.
Huda Beauty Spice Girl Liquid Lipstick
Huda Beauty Spice Girl Liquid Lipstick is a mauve shade on me, and again I can’t get enough. It reminds me a lot of Limecrime Saint [spoke about that here], a shade which I have pretty much used up. I love browny mauve shades so this was bound to be a winner. Pigmentation is great and like all the other shades, this one is so so comfortable. One thing I really do like about the Huda Beauty liquid lipstick is that if you layer it, it doesn’t get cakey and dry and horrible. So even if you are touching up, you don’t need to completely remove it before you apply again.
Huda Beauty Vixen Liquid Lipstick
Out of all the shades I think Huda Beauty Vixen is going to be the one I wear the least. Not because I don’t like it, but because the other shades are more every day shades and this is more of a bold colour. I am more of a bright red kinda gal, and this is more of a deep brown red. That being said, it won’t go unused, I think for the days I am being a bit more bold, this can be the shade I turn to. I think date night when I look at it, so it will be my go to for a more glamorous lip.
Overall, despite the fact that the lasting power isn’t as great as other liquid lipsticks, I am loving this kit. Every single shade is so pretty and I know it is a kit I will get a lot of wear out of. I don’t think I will be picking up any of the other Huda Beauty mini kits, simply because I can see that I won’t like one or two of the shades, I am just so glad that I picked well and loved every shade in this set AND all the consistencies were good. The set retails for £33.00 which works out to be £8.25 per mini (1.9ml). It isn’t cheap, but I don’t regret picking it up at all. You can pick it up [here].
